20a fuse keeps blowing

I have a 2006 GS Sun Voyager 8388. The interior lights in the living room slide out quit working and I found a blown fuse in the coach panel at the end of the bed. It was 20 amp. I replaced it with another 20a and it blew almost immediately with none of those aforementioned lights on. I have not found anything else thatís on the same circuit as that fuse and lights. My fear is that a wire shorted inside the slide out somewhere but I donít have the resources to run that down. Also, if this is important, the fuse sparks when I attempt to insert a new one. Iím stumped. Any ideas what it could be and how to fix? By the way, Iím a newbie to class A motorhomes. Bought this one from my dad and it has been sitting for years but is generally in good condition.

A slide out is common place to break a wire, (from flex/ movement) but that does not blow fuses; what does blow fuses is PINCHED/ GROUNDED WIRES, so this is (usually) OUTSIDE and/or UNDER, and should be fairly easy to find? Good Luck
